In recent version Firefox blocks all popups in the private mode even on sites, where I have popups enabled in normal mode. I am pretty sure it is a new behavior. Popups can be enabled even in private mode, but it is not saved. In some earlier version Firefox in the private mode used to apply popup settings from both private and normal mode. Is there any way to get this behaviour back except downgrade ?

Hi I got a problem which I think is caused by Firefox/Facebook.

Sometimes (quite often) when I'm in Facebook and scrolling down, suddenly Facebook starts to scroll on its own and then the cursor starts flickering. The only way to correct this is to restart the computer. Very often when i log in for the first time afters such a restart all my desktop icons are shown wide apart, and the I have to logoff/logon again. Then it works until the next time.

I have switched the hardware acceleration of in Firefox with the same result.

Acctually, it happend right now, and now I don't have Facebook open.

If I can't fix it i have to stop using Firefox!

In Twitter, when I use the Copy link to Tweet button and then try to paste the link to share in Gmail it fails to show (it is there, but invisible). If I copy the link into another document and then redo cut and paste into Gmail it works OK. It is Firefox specific and something to do with the ?s=20 part of the link... if I change the 20 to 21 then it works fine. And if I copy the link in Edge it works fine. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

Hi there, I'm using xero which works great in firefox except for the "projects" option. It works fine if I use another browser, but if I click on projects within xero while using firefox it simply doesn't load. I've done a log me in session with xero help and they tell me that everything is fine from their end so it must be a problem/block within firefox (surprise surprise - "not our problem"). It was working fine up until about 6 weeks ago. Anyone else come across this? It's a pain as firefox is my preferred browser but I have to use another browser to get full functionality out of xero. Thanks in advance!

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

How to make Firefox automatically use a specific application when clicking on a link to a torrent file?

Firefox Browser 86.0.1 (32-bit) [Windows 8.1]

After installing Firefox, when clicking for the first time on a link to a torrent file, a dialog box "You have chosen to open" / "What should Firefox do with this file? (Open with... / Save File)" appeared. A day later, when clicking on another link to a torrent file, the same dialog box appeared, this time with the added checkbox option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on".

{About this, I wonder, why this checkbox option did not appear from the beginning. Is there a bug that prevents this checkbox option to appear in some circumstances? — Maybe the explanation for this is here.}

Now, after I check the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on", and select to open a torrent file with a specific application, the torrent file is opened by that application. So far, so good.

After that, I expected, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, that the dialog box "You have chosen to open" would NOT appear again, and that the torrent file would be opened directly in the chosen application. But no, that dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again each time I click on a link to a torrent file (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective.

After that, the Content Type "TORRENT file" has appeared in "Options/General/Files and Applications/Applications", with the option "Always ask" selected. The fact that this option is selected now, is not expected, because of the checking of "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" earlier on. After selecting the alternative option "Use other...", and then choosing a specific application from a list of helper applications for the Content Type "TORRENT file", the corresponding Action is now set to use that specific application.

After that, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, the dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So now again, that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective. The same happens when clicking on other links to a torrent file.

Why is the checked option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" not effective? Is this a bug, or is there something that I can do to make it effective?

{I tried whether the extension "Content-Type Fixer" could solve my problem, but this is not the case. When using this extension, it reported: "This content-type is already set up!"}

Hi,

I wanted to check my historic but I couldn't access it. I first thought it had disappeared or something but it seems that the "show historic" button is actually hidden by my task bar. Or, in other words, the tab is too long.

I can't find anything in the setting to change it.

Thanks in advance if you know how to solve this problem.

Hi there,

I wanted to sync my reading list via Pocket between multiple devices. On my iOS devices, this works fine but I cannot enable Pocket for Firefox on my Windows laptop. In about:config the setting for extensions.pocket.enabled is set false and is greyed out, so I cannot change it. I checked about:profiles and found two profiles, one in root and one in local directory. The one in the root directory has a prefs.js file, where extensions.pocket.enabled is apparently set to true (contrary to what is said in about:config).

I have done some googling but couldn't figure out why I cannot change the setting in about:config. I would very much appreciate your help. My laptop has Windows 10 and Firefox is of version 87.0. The laptop has an enterprise environment, so maybe some app or default setting is blocking the settings. However, I don't know what to look for, but I am granted admin rights to make changes if necessary.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, Nicolas

Hello, I use Windows 7 with a Gateway computer. On the "new tab" page I pin sites,but, they are removed sooner or later for new sites. When I pin a site , I expect it to remain . So, even if I do not visit a site for a long time, is there a way to keep my pinned sites from being displaced ? Also, instructions say, "to show more or fewer top sites" to hover until the edit link appears. I try hovering all over but can not get the edit link to appear. Any help will be much appreciated.
